  1. In-Situ Solid State Laser Spectroscopic Monitor for Real-Time Molecular Beam Epitaxy Process Control

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller, Inc. (FMI) in association with Schwartz Electro Optics, Inc. (SEO) proposes to develop a novel in-situ real-time sensor for monitoring Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) growth processes. These sensors will be based on laser induced atomic fluorescence, which is the method of choice for trace analysis of atomic species in the low pressure MBE environment. The enabling technology is the ...

  2. Agents, Agencies, Artifacts, and Appliances

    SBC: CRYSTALIZ, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We proposed to develop an application development framework based on mobile code language called Agents, Agencies, Artifacts, & Appliances. The key innovated feature of this framework is the support for development of collaborative applications and the support for higher level design patterns rather than low level user interface construction. The framework will be based on an object oriented MIT ...

  3. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...

  4. An Advanced Technology Chemical and Biological Agent Standoff Detection System

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Standoff detection of chemical and biological agent clouds is extremely important for the protection of US armed forces. We propose a system that will successfully perform stand off detection of both chemical and biological agents using a unique combination of advanced technologies. An imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) will perform the remote detection of chemical agents from an Unman ...

  5. High Performance E-Beam Curable Resins for Affordable Polymer Matrix RTM/Automated Tape Layup Composite Primary Airframe Structures

    SBC: AEROPLAS CORP. INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    Currently available rad curable resins such as acrylates are inhibited by oxygen in ambient air, lack thermal stability and have poor fracture toughness. Recent Rad curable BMIs and epoxies suffer from voids due to lack of processability. Aeroplas Corporation International (ACI) proposes to demonstrate and further develop their line of atomic oxygen resistant (AOR) E-Beam curable composite resin ...

  6. Integration of Surface-Sensitive Diode Laser and Microfluidic Components for On-Chip Chemical Analysis

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for simple, light-weight practical instrumentation for rapid characterization of chemical and biological analytes in the modern battlefield. Recently, a surface-sensitive diode laser (SSDL), having over 1% of the mode power in the region extending 40 nm from the laser surface has been designed and fabricated. The SSDL was capable of monitoring the deposition of absorptive films a ...

  7. Compact Diesel Reformer for PEM Fuel Cells

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Various diesel reforming methods have been tried to develop an efficient and reliable means of providing hydrogen to fuel cell power systems promising high efficiency and low pollution. The most difficult obstacle has been coking up of reformers. Aspen proposes to solve the coking problem through an approach based on two proprietary technologies: catalytic diesel cracking and hydrogen separati ...

  9. Evidential Reasoning and Model-Based Simulation for Battlefield Information Management

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Providing the commander with timely, accurate, and meaningful information is a critical problem in the design and deployment of battlefield information management systems. A methodology is needed for presenting the critical information in a situationally-relevant manner, to support the commander's visualization of the battlefield and assessment of tactical alternatives. We propose a hybrid solu ...

  10. Tunable Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers for 1550 nm

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Development of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers for 1550nm communication applications has been hindered by the lack of high quality Bragg mirrors. Efforts for growing high quality InGaAsP/InP, SbGaAsAI/InGaAsP as well as wafer-bonding with GaAs/AIOx mirrors are on-going but significant breakthroughs in material quality and yield are needed before devices are produced. In addressing this ch ...
